Whimsical and sometimes realistic animations such as this one were commonly reproduced mechanically in the Black Forest since the early Nineteenth Century. Here, a woman beats her stitching husband over the head with a rolling pin. One strike for each hour. The tailor moves his sewing arm.

The scene recalls the Grimm Brothers’ story about the tailor who, with one blow, killed seven flies that were gathering around his fresh jam. He was so proud he made a belt and stitched on the lettering “Seven With One Blow.” As he strutted about town with this belt, rumor began to circulate that he had killed seven MEN with one blow.

When the King heard of this he called upon the tailor to solve some problems for him (giants, a dragon, etc.) and in return the taylor’s reward (of course) was to be the Princess’s hand in marriage.

The taillor had several adventures after that, and even managed to outwit every creature that came across his path – using brain instead of brawn to achieve his goal. When he returned to the King he settled down with his new wife, the Princess, and started up his tailor business again.

Imagine the Princess’s displeasure when she found that she hadn’t married a dashing and courageous prince at all. She was stuck with this lowly Tailor!

This eight-day, musical cuckoo clock features a large 36-note music box with an excellent sound. It has a night shut-off lever so you can turn off the music and cuckoo and leave the time-keeping function running.

The dial, hands, and numbers and bird are all of solid wood. The shingles on the roof are individually laid, and all the carvings are done by hand. Among other details, this clock includes logs that were commonly placed on Black Forest roofs to hold the huge amounts of piling snow.
